Computational model for solution convection due to density difference

  1. Feb 10, 2017 #1
    I am a corrosion engineer and I am trying to model localised corrosion, where saturated (dense) salt solutions flow over less dense solutions.

    I am aware of the Rayleigh-Benard convection model, where hot water rises and cool water sinks (e.g. boiling water on a hob). Is there a well known model that deals with this effect using concentration variation rather than temperature?
    I'm cautious of using RB and imposing unexpected thermal effects

    Thanks for the thread! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post? The more details the better.
